AR - Here you go.

The show:

"A solid above average show. The stand outs carried more weight than the handful of annoyingly chimey tunes. Make no mistake, the chimey tunes were really bad. Plus we got the added ick factor of Why Don’t We Do It In The Road....Still, with the peaks much higher than the valleys were low, the show was a good one."


The song:

"s. Why Don’t We Do It In the Road – The longest 3:55 in recorded Grateful Dead history. Why don’t we throw this song in the trash can? Along with Brent’s ridiculous falsetto screeching and screaming."

The best this song could achieve in The 1984 Project was to suck bad enough to be capable of drawing a vacuum on deep space.

I figured the show would rate above average but not in the top tier. Was curious about that.

On the song, I take it you may possibly be in the "anti" camp, then.

:-)

But you are wrong about the longest 3:55 in GD recorded history. Any given 3:55 section of Easy to Love You, Tons of Steel, etc would definitely be longer.
